Maybe there's something to be considered by this statement.

I've been editing on PC's ... and am about to pick up a MBP.

BTW, you didn't mention what your current Apple rig is that you'd be upgrading from. Wondering how it might compare the M1 / M2 MBP.

Given that you're mentioning LR (i.e. not video), and 100,000+ edits a year, then you're doing 500+ edits a day (assuming 200 day/yr), and on a 4 hour day, that's about 120 edits an hour, or 30 seconds an edit. Numbers vary, but my point is that this seems like high volume, low performance needs, just a lot of repetition. If your current system is achieving that already, then where is the main concern about getting a PC based rig, instead of, say a well built MBP for $4K ... with the premise that an M1 / M2 MBP (or other) will be an improvement over your current Apple rig?

Anecdotal reports are that power users here have said the new MBP's trump their previous Mac systems, significantly. I think I'd explore that first (i.e. buy what you can afford in Mac) and get something to try out (Apple's great return policy @ 14 days). Then you'd know how it is in real world for you. IF it doesn't suit your needs, then look at other options ... but, it sounds like you're eager to skip on past Mac, before finding out what it WILL DO within your desired price point.


Just some .02.
